About this book


Examining the importance of cultural attitudes on human resource practices, this book addresses an important, but often neglected aspect of cross-cultural leadership. First providing an overview of globalization processes and a description of the global mindset concept, the author discusses how the mindset of a manager can influence cross-cultural leadership behavior and behavioral intentions. Global Mindset and Cross-Cultural Behavior: Improving Leadership Effectiveness  shows how an intercultural and global approach improves managerial attitudes towards different cultural values, intercultural interactions and motivation. Using a behavioral intentions model to provide a tool for predicting cross-cultural leadership behavior, the author demonstrates how this can be applied to human resource strategy and practice.
